Interactions between your drugs

Moderate

sildenafil alfuzosin

Applies to: Viagra (sildenafil) and Uroxatral (alfuzosin)

Talk to your doctor before using sildenafil together with alfuzosin. Combining these medications can lower your blood pressure and increase the risk of dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, flushing, headache, and nasal congestion. These side effects may also occur with either medication alone and are most likely to be seen at the beginning of treatment, following a dose increase, or when treatment is restarted after an interruption. Let your doctor know if you develop these symptoms and they do not go away after a few days or they become troublesome. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how these medications affect you, and use caution when getting up from a sitting or lying position. In general, your blood pressure should be stable and you should be on a steady dose of one medication before you begin the other. You may need a dose adjustment or your blood pressure checked more often if you take both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

Drug and food interactions

Moderate

sildenafil food

Applies to: Viagra (sildenafil)

If you are receiving therapy with sildenafil you should avoid the regular consumption of large amounts of grapefruits and grapefruit juice. Grapefruit can raise the levels of sildenafil in your body and delay the time it takes for the medication to work. Do not increase or decrease the amount of grapefruit products in your diet without first talking to your doctor.

alfuzosin food

Applies to: Uroxatral (alfuzosin)

Food can enhance the levels of alfuzosin in your body. Alfuzosin should be taken just after eating food. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. Take alfuzosin after the same meal each day. Do not take it on an empty stomach.
